Nice!

Really pretty. Fun story about how people call it Beihai (which means ocean) because they had never seen the ocean and the lake is so big.

Beautiful park. Do this after the Forbidden City and Jingshan Park because it is right next to Jingshan Park. A perfect chance to take it easy away from the Beijing crowds, although it is extremely popular itself!

After your visit of the Forbidden City, go to relax in the Behai Park and nearby Coal Hill Park (where Emperor Chongzhen hang himself to not see the Manchu destroy his palace). This is part of the must-do tour: Forbidden City, Hutongs, Bell and Drum Tower.

It's very nice and beautiful especially the lotus flowers on the lake. Enjoyed the boat riding wondering among the flowers. It's less crowded than Summer Palace. Recommend to come here, then JingShan park which is nearby.

We got here just before sunset and the views and pictures we took were beautiful. It's really nice to just walk around and get away from the madness of the Beijing streets. There will be lots of other tourists but it's unavoidable in Beijing.

I found this trip very relaxing and gave me a look at the old china. The grounds are beautiful & clean. The gardens are amazing and worth the trip alone. The architecture is amazing and I loved walking through the park, was a surprise round every corner.

Near the Forbidden City, this park is not crowded and has very nice views of the city of Beijing. It has a beautiful lake and a peaceful environment. It is worth a visit.
